I am 59 years old and recently retired. I have had a lifelong struggle with weight. I have asthma and high blood pressure. Recently I was told by my Dr. that I was prediabetic. This news really put a fire under me and I am determined to lose weight and get fit once and for all. I am going to the gym regularly and have just joined group sessions of personal training. As far as weight goes I am not concentrating on numbers just getting healthy and feeling better. Since I have started going to the gym regularly, I am 10 pounds down but even better have more energy and my skin glows. I am hoping the spark site will help with that fire I have lighted.
